SLI fail?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I am running an amd phenom955 OC'd to 3.72 ghz and SLI 460 gtx and I am only getting between 30-60% use out of them when I run msi afterburner during gameplay such as rift. I would think that I would not have a cpu bottleneck but maybe I am wrong? Any suggestions?

You shouldn't have a CPU bottleneck at that speed. But you haven't said anything about your ram so that could be causing it as well.

Nothing better then updating your drivers to the very latest from the nvidia website as that should help fix the SLI problems. I would make sure it happens in every game as well. It could just be a one off thing.

your right hellboy I just tested in shogun and my cards run at about 70-90% usage. Much better and am relieved that I dont have any hardware issues although am disappointed the SLI isn't working with rift.

Thought that might be the case. But as stated new drivers may help down the track.

Also rift is largely a new game and as such their engine will need updates etc to really take more advantage of SLI and CF setup's.
